  • We give out apples. We like the looks on all of the kids faces when they see an apple going into their bag.

  • As a kid I always hated the cheap candy like peanut butter chews that are wrapped in black & orange papers. So, as an adult, I get the good stuff like the mini candy bars. I always buy an extra bag for my hubby and I so we don't indulge in treats that are meant to be handed out.
    Avas...hahaha! Is it that look of disgust? Raisins have the same effect.

  • That is so funny..omg.. I can only imagine their faces. I should buy apples and raisins this yr just for laughs..lol
    But every yr we normally get a mixture of chocolates (kit kats, herseys/ reeses..etc) and another bag of mixed candies (jolly ranchers, smarties, pixie sticks, gum, etc) we buy a huge bag from costco.. and yes, my kids do pick through it. I always let them get 1st dibbs :)

  • Well, we don't get trick or treaters here. But I always buy a bag of the "good stuff" just in case. Like mini reeses, mini hersheys, ya know stuff i won't mind eating if I HAVE to. LOL But if I had trick or treaters I would still get the good stuff.

  • Raisins and apples is not too bad I guess compare to the toothbrush or pennies given that I got when I was young. LOL
